Abstract
Pressure drop in pipes can be calculated by using Darcy-Weisbach
formula. In order to use this formula, Darcy friction factor should be
known. The best approximation to Darcy friction factor for turbulent flow is
given by Colebrook-White equation. This equation can only be solved by
numerical root finding methods. There are several other approximate
equations to Darcy friction factor with some relative error compared to
Colebrook-White equation. In some of these equations the percentage error
is so small that they can be used directly in place of Colebrook equation. In
this study relative error of several equations are re-evaluated.

INTRODUCTION
The pressure loss in pipe flow is calculated by using DarcyWeisbach equation. The equation is given as:
L V2
∆P = f ρ
(1)
D 2
In equation (1) ∆P is the pressure drop, f is Darcy friction factor, D is the
hydraulic diameter of the pipe and V is the average velocity. Darcy friction
factor f depends on the flow regime. For fully developed laminar flow
(Reynolds number Re < 2100) friction factor can be determined from
Hagen-Poiseuille equation as

f =

Where, Re Reynolds number. The definition of the Re number can be given
as:

Where ρ is the density and µ is the dynamic viscosity of the fluid. In
equation (2) the friction factor changes inversely with Reynolds number.
For transition region (2100 ≤ Re ≤ 4000) and turbulent region (Re ≥ 4000) in
smooth as well as rough pipe the friction factor can be described by
Colebrook-White equation.

FRICTION FACTOR EQUATIONS AND ERROR

Where є/D is the relative roughness which is the ratio of the mean height of
roughness of the pipe to the pipe diameter. As seen from equation (4) the
friction factor is function of Reynolds number and pipe roughness (є).
Colebrook-White equation cannot be solved directly due to it’s an implicit
form as the value of f appears on both side of the equation. In order to solve
equation (4) a numerical root finding method, for example Newton-Raphson
method can be used.

Equation (8) is required to be solved iteratively. In order to solve the
equation, an initial guess is needed. If the value of the first guess is diverge
from the true root value too much equation might converge very slowly or
might not converge at all. In order to find the first guess value one of the
approximate formulas given below can be used. For example Haaland
equation can be used to give the first estimation value for the ColebrookWhite equation. The result of some of the approximation equations listed is
very close to the result obtained from Colebrook-White equation. When the
error level of the new equation is relatively small, requirement of using
Colebrook-White equation can be eliminated all together. Calculation of
pipe pressure drop usually calculated by computers. Replacing an iterative
root finding problem with a directly calculatable equation could save
computer calculation time. The simler equation can be easily computed by
using simpler computational environment such as programmable calculators
or spreadsheet programs such as MS Excel. Some of the Colebrook-White
equation approximation formulas are listed below.

Error Analysis of Non-Iterative Friction Factor Formulas Relative to ColebrookWhite Equation for The Calculation of Pressure Drop in Pipes
In order to determine the relative error of all these approximate formulas,
relative error of each equation is with respect to Colebrook-White equation
is calculated by using the following equation:
Relative Error =
( f Colebrook −White − f ) × 100
f Colebrook −White
(42)
3.
RESULTS
The results for the relative error are shown graphically. Results obtained
from error analysis are briefly explained below.
- In transition region relative error is too high; as the effect of turbulence
increased (for high Reynolds number) the relative error will be decreased.
If the approximation formulas are scaled in the order of relative error, Best
results are obtained from Goudar-Sonnad equation, Serghides equation,
Romeo equation; Ziagrang equation and Chen equation are fallowed up in
the given order.
- When a comparison according to degree of the error is made, GoudarSonnad equation with small percentage error order exceeds 10-9 % is very
close to the result obtained from Colebrook-White equation. Then the next
best equation is Serghides equation with percentage error order 10-5 %
which is also can be used practically.
- Because of these equations is precision enough, the need for use
Colebrook-White iterative solution seems to be eliminated.
